New feature coming to smartphones, streaming apps like video will now be possible
Professor Surabh Bagashi, a professor of Lectural and Computer Engineering, has devised a solution to this problem in the form of “App Streaming”.
This technique is essentially similar to the well-known video streaming service “Netflix” in which the movie being watched, broadcast from company server to your computer or smart TV, but not secure. The same thing will be done in the app streaming.
To put this technology into practice, Bugsie and colleagues have also created a software called “App Streamer” that they have tested on many mobile game users.
Apps that use app streamers take up minimal space on their smartphones, and when launched, they connect to a cloud server and download all the necessary data, source code, videos and graphics and run them at the same time. And when they are switched off, the smartphone automatically deletes all of these things.
The important thing is that even if the connection is slowing down or the mobile phone network is getting slower, the streaming process continues with great speed and without interruption.
During the app streamer trial, most users playing the game did not realize that data was being streamed from a cloud server, but rather that they understood that all data was stored on the smartphone.
Now the need to store data on the smartphone from the App Streamer will be reduced by up to 85%, while the software can also be used to download more data at the same speed of internet connection.
The kind of software that an app streamer relates to is called “middleware”. Middleware’s job is to communicate between the operating system / installed software and the server on the Internet, and to facilitate the transfer of data better.
A research article by Surabh Bagashi and colleagues about the app streamer was published in the “Archives” in December last year, as it details more about the “International Conference on Embedded” held in Lyon, France on February 18, 2020. Wireless Systems Networks “
